This intervention is designed for cut throughs: paths or alleyways which people are often rushing or passing through. These sites are rarely a destination, just a means to get somewhere else, and they often feel neglected or messy, with no bin in sight – all of this makes gum littering more likely. This countdown nudges people towards waiting to dispose of their gum until they reach the next bin.

How to execute this intervention

This intervention was effective in a busy walkway between public transport hubs but could be applied in any situation where a cut through only has a bin available at either end. It uses a human tone to gently encourage waiting (as opposed to a more official warning).
